Mission Suggestible (Shellshock)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

‘Mission Suggestible’ was an improvised comedy based on espionage and spy films; to be blunt, that is where my understanding – of whatever it was the performance was trying to achieve – stops. I had hoped for a band of witty actors, clever plot twists and punchy one-liners, not a group of awkward twenty-somethings fake brawling with each other and making no sense for 50 long minutes. Although I found it disappointing, as an improvised show ‘Mission Suggestible’ will probably differ with every performance and perhaps I caught it on a bad day. But somehow, I just can’t see this juvenile team of actors cum special agents growing up in time to produce some decent comedy.

Paradise In The Vault, 6 – 21 Aug (not 15), 3.15pm (4.05pm), £6.50 – £7.50, fpp120.
